    Kind of a frankin razor but a great second shave of the day. A West Coast Shaving open comb head on a Razorock handle, Feather blade, Amici and a nice brush. Last 2 a days for a while, so I can go back to only morning shave.

    Wondering if a brass Gem Junior pat. 1912 is concidered a open comb, closed comb, or a hybird?

    Well the existence of the Damaskeene OC implies that the usual Damaskeene isn't an open comb, so the 1912 cannot be either. I don't believe hybrid is a thing, if it's not open it's closed . Don't get me started on the R41.

    New Long Comb/PolSilver (3). Handle is a bit heavy but I prefer it to stock CBH or Tech Fat Handle which are too light for good balance. I order some tungsten putty to add some heft to both.The Long Comb is a nice smooth shave if not quite as good as the SC ATG on my head. I may prefer it anyway.[​IMG]

    Every time I use this razor I wonder how it got its aggressive reputation.
    It's efficient and assertive but if aggression is your bag, I'd suggest the 1924 or Streamline, I found both harder to learn than this intuitive little marvel.
    Happy Shaving one and all.

    Where would you put the Eclipse Red Ring.
    It definitely shaves like an OC, plenty of residual slickness left for pick ups.

    I put it high on my want list!!

    It's its own thing alright. But again there is a safety bar so technically it's not open.

    I agree but it's a truer hybrid than the R41.

    It's a safety bar with teeth.

    A little over 1oz of tungsten putty between them and both SC and LC are now as perfectly balanced as the New Deluxe.[​IMG][​IMG]
